Carlos I Imperial Solera Gran Reserva Brandy de Jerez. I've been nursing the contents of this bottle, which I brought back from our trip to Barcelona last autumn, and am now nearing the last few pours.
Superior spirit by any standards.
Picked up a bottle of this last April on my way back from Madrid (£40 - wahoo!). Stunning stuff. I've kept the bottle and it's little glass stopped to use for my...er...homebrews (damson gins etc) as it's a lovely bottle too.
I know less refined, and a bit more whollop, but I prefer Gran Duque D'Alba for it's heavy sherry notes.
....ah, good brandy.....ah
